Aecom to design and built 119 loft-style apartments in Shoreditch

Aecom has won a contract to design and build the first two phases of a £40m luxury apartment scheme in Shoreditch, its largest contracting job in the UK to date.

The 10-storey development on Long Street will see a new build over a secant-piled basement as well as the refurbishment of two existing buildings to provide 119 loft-style apartments.

Aecom has been procured by real estate firm IGI for the project.  John Hilton, head of construction services, UK & Ireland, Aecom, said: “This win is part of our focused strategy to bring AECOM’s global design and build capabilities to the UK commercial and residential sector.

“It’s a focused approach that tightly integrates design and construction to help our clients save money and reduce build time. We look forward to working with our supply chain networks to grow our portfolio of commercial and residential projects across the UK.”
